OCTOBER 19th With AlexCavanaugh!

Today we're going to celebrate the release of Alex Cavanaugh's debut novel Cassastar! 

  There has been a significant increase in Sci fi  in YA world, and while this isn't YA it still looks badass. I haven't been much for Sci Fi but its really because I haven't tried it. But lately, I can't help but get sucked in. Especially with great stories and characters like Alex has.
So enough about me me me, here is a bit on Alex and his debut!

CassaStar by Alex J. Cavanaugh
October 19, 2010 Science fiction/adventure/space opera
ISBN 9780981621067 Dancing Lemur Press LLC

To pilot the fleet’s finest ship…

Labeled a problem youth with a poor attitude, few options exist for Byron. His only chance for success resides in an opportunity to train as a Cosbolt fighter pilot. Enlisting in the fleet, he sets off for the moon base of Guaard to begin a new life and prove his worth.

To his chagrin, Byron catches the eye of Bassa, the toughest instructor in the fleet. Troubled by the memory of a fallen pilot, Bassa at first sees only a talented but insolent young man in need of an attitude adjustment. When a secret talent is revealed during training, Bassa feels compelled to help Byron achieve his full potential.

However, time is running short. War brews on the edge of space and Byron will require a talented navigator to survive. The shadows of the past loom large and Bassa must make a decision that could well decide the fate of both men. Does he feel strongly enough to follow the young man on a mission that may stretch their abilities to the limit?
